MINOT, N.D. —A Minot genealogical research group is celebrating 40 years. Before the internet and electronic communications, Carol Schwan and John Mogren were eager to sign up as members of the Mouse River Loop Genealogical Society devoted to promoting local genealogical research. They’re the only remaining members from the 54 who chartered the society on April 1, 1978. Schwan says society meetings, held once a month with the exception of July, now draw about 15 members on average. By Jill Schramm, Minot Daily News. SENT IN ADVANCE: 517 words.
